"Starring Tom Burlinson - my first ever crush..."
5 stars"

I've worked out that I have watched this movie around 120 times… The most I have ever watched anything. It came out at movie theatres when I was 12 years old – and I've never been the same since. The story is heart-wrenching – and kind of makes you want to slap every American you come across. New Zealand – for its tiny, tiny place in the world – has produced some amazing things… The electric fence, just to name one – but Phar Lap, my beloved Phar Lap is the best of all. Truly a story to humble you, inspire you – and create a lifelong love affair with horses. The year I watched this movie, I got my first horse, absolutely determined to have the kind of relationship Tommy has with Bobby (Phar Lap)… And I've never looked back :). Greatest movie ever!!!


Portraying the history of the horse that most thought would never succeed, the epic movie moves from the early days when trainer Harry Telford and strapper Tommy Woodcock were the only ones to believe in his potential, to his Melbourne Cup win in 1930 and to the great horse's untimely death in the USA.
